Question:

155 Mr. Callely asked the Minister for Education the current position regarding the application by Ard Scoil Rís, Griffith Avenue, Dublin 3, for additional accommodation; the time schedule associated with the proposals; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [5256/97]

Architectural planning of the permanent extension at Ard Scoil Rís, Griffith Avenue, Dublin 3, is progressing. The project is currently at Stage 4, Detail Design of the architectural planning process.

Due to limited resources available and the large number of projects on hand, it was not found possible to list the extension project at Ard Scoil Rís on the post-primary school capital programme for 1997.

However, this project will continue to be reviewed in light of available resources and competing priorities.
